If you are new in the area, searching for significance and purpose, or just curious about Jesus, we would love for you to join us on Sunday morning. You will feel welcomed.


On this page you will learn WHAT TO EXPECT while visiting, LOCATIONS and SERVICE TIMES, you'll MEET OUR STAFF, learn about our MISSION and WHAT WE BELIEVE.

what to expect

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking, but having an idea about what to expect can help.


We'll learn about Jesus

We teach from the Bible as our authority. It's God's Word. And it's all about Jesus. Most weeks, we'll work our way through books of the Bible, verse by verse, to learn what the whole Bible teaches and how it relates to Jesus. Each worship service lasts for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.


We'll sing to, and about, Jesus

We sing a great combinations of old and new songs. No matter what we sing, music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to receive wisdom from the Bible and be transformed by it. Occasionally we take the Lord's Supper together and each week we also give financially as part of our worship to join the work God is doing locally and all over the world.


We have a safe, fun, place for your kids

If you have kids, we have an amazing ministry for them where they will be cared for, encouraged, instructed and protected. Each Sunday you child will learn the Bible and how it relates to Jesus in an age-appropriate way. // More Information //


Security is a big deal to us. All of our volunteers have gone through background checks and training. We also have a check-in system to further put you at ease that your child is safe.

Our Mission & What we Believe

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)


OUR MISSION is to make faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission is the heartbeat of our church. It is what brings life to everything we do, from Sunday morning services, Bible studies, community groups, Kids and Student ministries and Outreach.


To carry out our mission we strive to LOVE GOD passionately, SERVE OTHERS sacrificially and IMPACT THE WORLD redemptively.


Core Beliefs

GOD

We believe there is one God who eternally exists in three equally divine persons; The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is the all-powerful Creator of everything and sovereign over all. He is infinitely holy and deserving of our highest worship. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 45:5-6)


MAN

We believe man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. But through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell from perfect relationship with God so that all men are inclined to sin and spiritually dead in their sins. Only the grace of God can reconcile this relationship. (Genesis 1:26-30; Romans 3:10-18; 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-10)


JESUS

We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, willingly died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose from the grave with a glorified body and ascended into heaven. Now He is exalted at the right hand of the Father and will literally return to earth to establish His Kingdom. (John 1:1-5; 14; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:5-11' Colossians 1:15-20; Matthew 25:31-33)


SALVATION

We believe salvation is the work of God and a gift to be received free from human effort. Only through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can man be saved from their sins. Even though salvation is effective immediately it is also a process that God develops over a lifetime. (Acts 16:31; Galatians 2:16, 20; Ephesians 1:3-6; Philippians 2:12-13)


HOLY SPIRIT

We believe God the Holy Spirit is active in carrying out the will of God. He worked in creation, inspiring the writing of scripture and the ministry of Jesus. The Holy Spirit still works by convicting unbelievers of their need for salvation, as well as comforting and guiding the lives of each believer. He is the fuel which empowers the Church. (John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Peter 1:21)


THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible is the Word of God without any error. It is God's revelation of Himself to mankind as the sole authority for life and faith and therefore should be trusted. It will never pass away and points all things to God's plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. (Psalm 119:105; Isaiah 40:8; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12)


BAPTISM & THE LORD'S SUPPER

We believe Jesus Christ instructed His followers to regularly practice baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism does not save an individual but serves to symbolize an identification with Jesus' death and resurrection and thus a connection with His Church. The Lord's Supper demonstrates an ongoing remembrance of the sacrifice of Christ in order to align our lives with His as well as an anticipation for His return when we will fellowship around His table. (Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 22:19-20; Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
